Beach Fun with Family & Friends

We got to go to the beach!  It's been 4 years since Jimmy & I went to Amelia Island, Florida, where we spent our honeymoon 9 years ago.  We talked about bringing our future family there one day, and our dream was fulfilled!  Even though we had 3 days of rain and cloudy windy skies (thanks to Tropical Storm Debby), being wrapped up in a towel at the beach was better than enduring the blistering heat wave in Tennessee.  Just a day into the trip we had a grand surprise orchestrated by my sweet husband...my parents arrived and spent an evening and one day with us!  I knew they were coming to surprise the boys, but they came a night early and surprised me!  What fun!  I'm so glad they got to see the boys enjoying the beach and waves!  In fact, they helped ease the boys into it.  Aside from sand castles, shell hunting and wave jumping, we also ate some fantastic meals...Brett's Waterway Cafe, Sandy Bottoms and Townies in Fernandina.  We were also blessed to drive a little way south to St. Augustine and see our dear friends who generously drove up from Orlando to see us.  We love you Zakhary Family and appreicate you orgnaizing a wonderful afternoon for us!  The boys made instant best friends, which we thought they would.  Just glad they like each other because we hope to visit again as soon as possible!  Suffice it to say, Florida is our favorite vacation spot, and getting to have Family join us, along with seeing our best long-distance Friends just put icing on the cake!  Here's some photos from our trip...
